Forum: GratefulDead Subject: orchestra pit banter

I'm trying to locate a show from '71 or '72 (I think), somewhere on the East Coast, with a hysterical bit of banter from the band. They're trying to get audience members to clear the orchestra pit, and Jerry warns them that "otherwise we'll drop the orchestra on you...from the cunningly concealed trapdoor in the ceiling" (or something along those lines).

Can anyone help?
thanks,
MW

I doubt this is it. I scanned the show and didn't find the part you are talking about but check out the second review.

9/23/72 Waterbury, start of the second set before Promised Land.
Weir: Hey, you folks down there in the orchestra pit had best get out, on account of you may not be there much longer anyway. What I mean to say is -
Garcia: They're gonna drop the orchestra in. Through the cleverly concealed trapdoor in the ceiling.
Weir: That thing you're standing on is the last word in temporary. Well, God love you is all I can say.
